And who am I, you may ask? She who locates legendary riches! A genius! An explorer! I'm none other than Candace, the notorious treasure hunter!
— Candace introducing herself to Midori

Candace (Japanese: ドラジェ Dragee) is a capturable boss unit who is met in Paralogue 6 of Fire Emblem Fates. She had stolen the Dragon Herbs that Midori had obtained.

Fire Emblem Fates


Candace is a minor boss appearing in Paralogue 6. During the events of the paralogue, Midori is in search of Dragon Herbs for her father Kaze, Candace appears and steals the herbs. Midori rushes off to recover her herbs and Kaze and the rest of the player's army follows to help Midori.

Candace is either defeated or captured by the player by the end of the paralogue.

Game Text
Fates A legendary Nohrian treasure hunter who
has dedicated her life to exploration.


  • Presumably due to the development team neglecting to make more models with her body type, Candace is incapable of reclassing and wearing the Bath Towel accessory. If she is hacked[3] into other classes, Candace reuses her Adventurer model for them.
  • Candace possesses a critical cut-in portrait, a trait shared with Nichol, and lacked by bosses that could be considered much more significant, like Iago and Hans. Additionally, her name is located among the names of characters that can exclusively marry Corrin[4] suggesting she had a more significant role before becoming a paralogue boss.

Language Name Definition, etymology and notes


From the hereditary title of the queens of Ethiopia, as mentioned in Acts in the New Testament. It is apparently derived from Cushitic kdke meaning "queen mother". In some versions of the Bible it is spelled "Kandake", reflecting the Greek spelling Κανδακη.[5]
